Jane and Craig wanted to create a new, dream home for their extended family on their estate in Nottinghamshire.
They wanted a design to reflect their lifestyle and create the perfect home for a multi-generational family.
A site with constraints
Jane and Craig asked us to replace their tired, dated house they had bought and rebuild it into the modern and spacious home they had always wanted.
The site is in the Teversal village conservation area. So we needed to make sure the design of their new home would be in keeping with the village setting. But the design also maximises the views of the beautiful landscape.
As well as creating a beautiful home. We were able to collaborate with local planners to get planning permission for the design at the first attempt.
Combining the modern with the historic
Taking inspiration from the historic surroundings, our design features two wings separated by a large open-plan and double-height kitchen, living and dining space.
Craig and Jane’s family will be able to come together in the main living areas to socialise. Then also allowing them to retreat into seperate living areas in the wings when needed.
As part of the design, there is a self-contained annexe with it’s own bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor for Jane’s father.
The home is a generous size with 5/6 bedrooms, so that family overseas can stay for extended periods and enjoy the first floor gallery library.
Sustainable and energy efficient home
The Last House was built using a high quality and sustainable timber frame from Oakworth Homes. Clad in beautiful red brick, it is highly energy efficient.
It includes lots of high quality specifications to ensure its energy efficiency and air tightness including triple glazed windows from Internorm and Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR).
“Great collaboration all round, from the client, architect, and building team.“
